Cell Stress Discoveries, Ltd.

Cell Stress Discoveries Ltd. was co-founded in December 2015 by Afshin Samali, Adrienne Gorman and Eric Chevet.  All three researchers are noted international experts, and long-term collaborators in the field of ER stress and disease.

The research focus of Cell Stress Discoveries is centred on the need to develop therapeutics and diagnostic markers for disease states influenced by ER stress, such as neurodegenerative diseases, various cancers, and cardiovascular disease.  Development of cellular and blood markers as indicators of ER stress will greatly facilitate the efficacy assessments of newly developed therapeutic treatments.
